Every book is personally signed and hand bound by Joseph, thereby completing the creation of work from his initial moment of seeing.

Damian has been proudly and exclusively shooting film for almost 20 years, often being calling a ‘stubborn purist’ as he has never
used a digital camera. He loves the slow, careful process and discipline of using film; taking only one photograph of something and learning from his mistakes, often not discovered 'til weeks later when the film is processed. He enjoys travelling on his own in no particular direction to see where the road and his eye takes him. These images are the product of many a road-trip and unplanned adventure.

They speak from the endlessly renewed place of the photographic expeditioner who loves the world and knows it’s a well that never runs dry.”
— Tim Davis
Shane Lavalette was commissioned by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta to create a new series of photographs for their 2012 exhibition, “Picturing the South.” Lavalette’s monograph, One Sun, One Shadow, is an extension of this body of work. Native to the Northeast, it was primarily through traditional music — the sounds of old time, blues, and gospel — that Lavalette had formed a relationship with the South. With that in mind, the region’s rich musical history became the natural entry point for this project and the resulting photographs. One Sun, One Shadow includes a text by artist and poet Tim Davis.
Shane Lavalette is an American photographer, an independent publisher and editor, and the director of Light Work. He holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Lavalette’s photographs have been exhibited widely, including at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Aperture Foundation, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, the Recontres d’Arles, and the Musée de l’Elysée; and are additionally contained within numerous private and public collections. In 2016, Lavalette published his first monograph, One Sun, One Shadow, and a solo exhibition of the same title was held at Robert Morat Galerie in Hamburg, Germany. Lavalette’s projects have been featured by theNew York Times, TIME, NPR, CNN, the Telegraph, Foam Magazine, and Hotshoe, among others; and his editorial work has accompanied stories in various publications, including the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker,Bloomberg Businessweek, The Wire, Wallpaper*, Monocle, and the Guardian.
